Last October I posted here about what apps were incompatible with High Sierra.

If you are still running Yosemite (10.11), now might be a good time to upgrade to 10.12.

Just a heads up that Mac OS Sierra has some major issues:
So if you are thinking of upgrading to Mac OS Sierra, I would be holding off until at least the first software update.
